Storyboard Text

  • Not in money, but before the year's out I'll have been paid. You watch. (pg 21 pdf)
  • Atticus, will Mr. Cunningham ever pay us back? (pg 21, pdf)
  • Nome thank you ma'am. (pg 20 pdf)
  • Here's a quarter, go and eat downtown today. You can pay me back tomorrow. (pg19 pdf)
  • That’s okay, ma’am, you’ll get to know all the county folks after a while. The Cunninghams never took anything they can’t pay back—no church baskets and no scrip stamps. They never took anything off of anybody, they get along on what they have. They don’t have much, but they get along on it. (pg 20, pdf)
  • Atticus teaches Scout about the Cunninghams and how they don't accept any type of charity. They will only take what they can pay back, usually in the form of goods as apposed to currency. Atticus is a primary agent of socialization for Scout, a role for all family members, socializing Scout to understand her community and the families inside it. Scout will be socialized throughout her entire life by various agents of socialization to teach her how to behave in society.
  • What's this shiny stuff in the tree doing here? Gum!? It could be poisonous...
  • Miss Caroline is a new teacher at Scouts school and comes from a completely different type of community. She is ignorant of the Maycom ways which makes her offer of a quarter to Walter Cunningham, so he could buy a lunch, embarrassing for him since he can't pay her back. Walter has never had to explain his behavior before, since the townsfolk are socialized to each other, so he just awkwardly declines and stands there.
  • It smells alright... maybe I'll give it a lick.
  • Scout stands up for Walter and explains to Miss Caroline how the Cunningham family is. How he doesn't have any money at home to pay her back with. Scout is using Atticus's teachings to socialize Miss Caroline into Maycomb standards.
  • "Don’t you know you’re not supposed to even touch the trees over there? You’ll get killed if you do!” (pg 34, pdf).
  • ...You go gargle—right now, you hear me (pg 34, pdf)
  • The tree's at the Radley place are believed to be poisonous by the children of Maycomb. They are not taught by agents of primary socialization that the trees are poisonous, rather all the children perpetuate that myth via secondary socialization. Each of the children teach each other as secondary agents,a role played by peers, friends, the media, and any other agents not in the primary socialization category, that the tree is poisonous. Secondary socialization occurs throughout your life just like primary socialization, only the sources are different and their impact is not weighed as heavily as primary agents. Scout finds some pieces of chewing gum in the tree and decides to take it and run home despite what she has been socialized to believe about the trees.
  • Scout arrives at home, still skeptical of the gum. She smells and licks it to see if there is any poison. After a short time she feels fine and eats the gum, challenging what she has learned from secondary agents of socialization. If she was told the same information about the trees from a strong primary agent, such as Atticus, she likely wouldn't second guess the gum.
  • Jem see's Scout eating the gum and questions where she found it. When she explains she got it from the tree Jem is extremely concerned for her, and tells her to rinse her mouth out. Scout is now in disbelief that the trees are poisonous and objects to his request, since they are clearly not poisonous. She only gives in when Jem threatens to get Calpurnia involved.
  • Ain’t neither, it’ll take the taste outa my mouth. (pg 34, pdf)
